Friday’s Future Red Wing: Alexey Marchenko

The Detroit Red Wings have a organization full of developing prospects that they have either drafted or picked up internationally throughout the years.

Alexey Marchenko is a 22-year-old, right-handed defenseman who has accumulated a plus-two rating and two penalty minutes against the Dallas Stars on Jan. 4, 2014.

The defender from Moscow, Russia is a very aggressive player and extremely good skater. Marchenko is more of a long-term defensive defender. He is a shut down, physical role player on the ice rather than an offensive threat to his opponents.
